It is also worth mentioning of two surprising events associated with the Tilma.
The first occurred in 1785 when a worker accidentally spilled a 50 percent nitric acid solvent on the right side of the cloth. However it t destroyed neither the fabric of the cloth nor the colors of the image.
The second event was the explosion of a bomb near the Tilma in 1921. The explosion broke the marble floor and widows 150 meters from the explosion, but unexpectedly, neither the Tilma nor the normal glass that protected the Tilma was damaged or broken. The only damage near it was a brass crucifix that was twisted by the blast. There are no explanations why the shockwave that broke windows 150 meters afar did not destroy the normal glass that protected the image. Some people said that the Son of Mary, Jesus Christ, by means of the brass crucifix protected the image of His Mother. The real fact is that we don’t have a natural explanation for this event.
Our Lady visited Mexico 482 years ago, but she remains there to give Her Love, Her Mercy and Her Care to anyone who needs it, and to bring Her Son, Jesus Christ to everyone who receives Him.
